Mini-melon ‘Minnesota Midget’ - before we got a greenhouse, I used to grow these in a simple cold frame and they did well too. Over the years I’ve tried several melon 🍉 varieties but ‘Minnesota Midget’ is always the most productive and healthiest. It is also deliciously sweet when properly ripe (I judge ripeness by smelling the fruits 😉). The flesh is brightly orange - I posted a photo of the cut fruit in my stories if you’re curious. Please let me know if there are other melon varieties for cool climate I should be checking out! ____ Via @growntocook Follow me @gardeninglifeus for more pictures . #lobotany #gardeningtips #gardener #gardeningwithkids #gardeningisfun #gardeningfun #backyardgardening #instagardening #ilovegardening #urbangardenersrepublic #urbangardener #gardenersofinstagram #allotment #gardeningtime #gardeninglovers #gardeners #growsomethinggreen #thehappygardeninglife #gardeningclub #organicgardenermag #gardeningaddict #epicgardening #amateurgardener #gardeningphoto

We had to #repost this positively mouthwatering recipe from @chefathand. Who else is dying to try this? 🤤 ・・・ 🌱 Basil and sumac displaced most of the parsley and lemon in our chimichurri sauce this year, due simply to abundance. It holds its colour well in the freezer, but only if vac-packed in freezer bags, or skim-coated with olive oil in small re-usable plastic or glass containers. Thaw in the fridge and serve cold or at room temp over just about any main attraction. Add a tablespoon to a white wine vinaigrette, or use as a dip for veg.

Today’s harvest. I picked “Dulce Rojo” paprika, “Aleppo” and the storm damaged peppers. Eggplants keep giving as you can see, and I found 3 tomatoes from still alive tomato vines. Second picture shows the “Dulce Rojo” paprikas. My first legitimate “Yellow Scallop” is in the third photo, and volunteer “Zucchino Rampicante” squash and “Obriy Ukrainian” peppers are on the fourth photo. My garden is basically out of control, and it keeps doing what it is supposed to do. #harvest #peppers #fall #growsomethinggreen #nofilter #nofilterneeded #garden #thehappygardeninglife #backyard #backyardgardener #veggies #organic #healthy #grow #growyourownfood #gardenplantlover #lovemygarden #kitchengarden #nature #urbangarden #seedsnow #homegrown #healthyfood #arkansas #littlerock #mygarden #urbanorganicgardener #ediblegarden #diy #homestead

Musa Dwarf Brazilian 🍌🍌 in my backyard. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t roll my eyes when I first heard about the idea of growing bananas in my yard. Definitely didn’t think it was possible. Here we are! 🌸 We cut off the bell last night. (Banana blossom that put out male flowers. The bottom yellow, smaller hand is 1/2 male and will probably get cut off) This is our first time doing that. It’s supposed to put the energy into the bananas instead of the blossom end. The first year we lost our bananas to the frost because they flowered too late. Last year they had just started to ripen (bell on) when our first round of frosts came, and we hung it inside to finish ripening. This year, the nanas surprised us and we’ve cut the bell off just as the male flowers started showing and we’re confident they’ll ripen before any chance of frost is here! ❄️

Rosmarinus officinalis var. repens is flowering yet again. This is such a hard worker with no woody legs in sight. Repens means ‘with a creeping habit’. This one might have a specific cultivar name but I’ve lost it. Also RHS says these all belong in the Prostratus Group of rosemary ... not sure we are covering groups in level 2. We are covering families and this is in the Lamiaceae family. Prostratus is so similar to repens; there are loads of names for almost the same meaning. I’m only through the A’s so far in my @rhswisley #latinforgardeners book! #rosemary . . . . #thehappygardeninglife #urbangarden #urbanorganicgardener #urbangardenersrepublic #gardenersofinstagram #garden #gardening #mygarden #jardin #potager #greenthumb #tinygarden #smallgarden #kitchengarden #GYO #ediblegarden #londongarden #eatwhatyougrow #dowhatyoulove #myhappyplace #sustainableliving #sustainable #sustainablesprout #organic #organicgrowing #thegoodlife #allotmentlife

A little Monday morning harvest while the baby takes her morning nap #🍉#🌱 👶🏻 💚 I cleared out the volunteer #watermelon and harvested these last few melons. Also picked a smaller butternut to check for readiness. Since this is my first time growing butternut I’m not 100% sure when they’re ripe. The color and outer skin look ready and the stem was pretty dry. There are a lot of squash on the vines so I don’t want to jump the gun on harvesting. #💚 Two types of #basil needed harvesting too. A traditional Italian basil and a larger leaf variety. Looks like we’re having pesto and squash for dinner tonight 😋 #butternutsquash

There is something about the combination of slow low soft sunrises and apples drizzled generously in the dewy grass that makes me feel so incredibly sentimental and grateful at the same time as I feel immensely desperate to grab it all, capture it and posses it, pause damnit, pause!!! please... before it drifts away into months of deep dark rainy days... but then I remind myself that I need those days of winter's rest as much as I need the flush of spring, the energy of summer, and the magic of autumn...

Our trip to NY was so great but man, I am glad to be back in my foggy, dew covered garden. The change of seasons is suddenly apparent and there is so much to do. . There has been a lot of death in our lives this year. Yesterday we went to a memorial of a loved one taken too early by cancer. Last week my Uncle died. Right before that one of my mother’s closest friends died. About a month before that my great aunt died. A week before that one of my husband’s best mates from college died. Before that our dear goldendoodle Noodle died. This recent string of deaths started with my college friend and midwife’s death. So much death and loss. . Working in the garden puts me in touch with the cycles of life and death in a way that is hard for me to describe, it’s deeply spiritual without being religious. When my hands are in the dirt, removing dead plants and planting new seeds, things make sense on a level that is beyond intellect. It brings me some degree of peace and equanimity even when my heart is full of grief. . I deeply believe in the therapeutic value of gardening and I wish everyone had access to similar coping strategies. I’m feeling extremely grateful for my garden today. 💚 . . . . . . . . . #workingitoutinthegarden #lifeanddeath #cycles #gardeningismytherapy #gratefulmindset #horticulturaltherapy #caringfortheearth #frontyard #droughttolerant #wildgarden #californiagarden #mysunsetgarden #permaculture #mygardentoday #waterwise #thehappygardeninglife #organicgarden #farmher #pollinatorgarden #organicgardening #instagarden #alltheplants #allthecolors #morningvibes #plantlady #urbanhomestead #foodnotlawns #alwaysblooming #santacruzca

85 Narcissi planted in the ground through the borders ✅ 💪🏻 (not just sprinkled on the ground like the picture!) 😆 Spring 2018 was the first year that I had four proper beds/borders (see photos from January when I started this account) so, as a young garden I don’t have many bulbs in the ground. I noticed there was a distinct lack of cheery narcissi earlier this year.. So, it had to be done! Varieties planted include; Minnow, Tete a Tete, Thalia, Canaliculatus, Van Winkle, Cheerfulness and Double Tahiti (listed so I don’t forget!) 😬 #narcissi #springbulbs #daffodils #autumn #mygarden #busybee #instagardeners #thehappygardeninglife #instagardenlovers #instagarden

Last night we decided to make vegetarian tacos out of one of our volunteer squashes. This is a mystery Kabocha-type squash that volunteered in the garden. We also had some tiny Golden California wonder Peppers, Brad’s Atomic Grape tomatoes and some of the dried tomatoes I made earlier this summer. We made a gluten free buckwheat tortilla to wrap the veggies we roasted with several cloves of our own garlic. The meal was topped off with the fermented hot sauce I made on Saturday. Sorry I have no photos of the full spread. We were hungry, and everything turned out so well that we inhaled the food like little pigs. . #growwhatyoueat #iShopInMyGarden #homegrownisbest #growyourown #kabochasquash #iShopInMyBackyard #eattherainbow #vegetariantacos #organicgardening #gardentofork #farmtofork #gardentotable #realfood #farmtotable #urbangarden #growyourownfood #homegrown #urbanfarm #sustainableliving #permaculture #urbanhomestead #biodiversity #thehappygardeninglife #sustainablesprout #urbanorganicgardener #urbangardenersrepublic #realhensofocgarden #realhensofoc

Happy Full Moon! 🌕⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Have you heard of biodynamic farming? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Biodynamics is a holistic, ecological, and ethical approach to farming, gardening, food, and nutrition, developed by philosopher and scientist Dr. Rudolf Steiner. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @lapaau_farm is not a "bio-dynamic" farm, but we are intrigued about biodynamic farming principles, and we often pay attention to a lunar planting calendar. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to biodynamic principles, the full moon, or a few days leading up to a full moon is a great time to sow or plant out root crops, decorative and fruiting perennials – take cuttings and divide plants.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We are curious to hear from you...what is your experience with biodynamic farming? 👇🏾 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #biodynamicfarming #biodynamics #biodynamic #lapaaufarm #mauifarmersmarket #mauifarmers #mauifarm #mauifarmlife #mauifood #mauifoodie #organicfarmer #organicfarm #organicproduce #localfoodmovement #slowfood #naturalfarming #organicfarmlife #thehappygardeninglife #abundantpermaculture #organicagriculture #marketgarden #simpleliving #naturalliving #biointensivefarming #organicfood #holisticliving #farminglifestyle #mauilife #luckywelivehawaii #iamamodernfarmer

We've come home to a beautifully watered garden! Two or three days of rain and we now have two colanders full of lettuce even after harvesting some last weekend. Harrison helped me pick some micro lettuce to get our micro green fix in as well. Yum! Would love some input into varieties of lettuce that aren't so bitter?
